just march on and through education educate the young to never forget. now wusa9's first alert weather rated d. c.'s most accurate forecast. >> okay, and we've had somewhat of a cloudy weekend weather- wise. i've got to say today no different. we started off pretty foggy with a little bit of drizzle here and there. i think today we're going to escape, a little drier than what we've had. we have a front coming on through. without a ton of sunshine it was hard to really get things going. so we are going to be a little bit drier. that's good news, better for your activities for this afternoon if you're headed to the parade, perfect weather for that. 74 degrees. our dew point's pretty high, but it is going to come down more so by the end of the week, actually. okay, temperatures around the region, 74 for gaithersburg. we are flirting with 80 degrees as you head to gaithersburg and also leesburg. finally, a little bit warmer. now we're actually going to see some sunshine, areas west of 95 you get th
12:07 pm
so we're generally dry right now, despite this front kind of sweeping on through. watch what happened to it. it started pretty weak to begin with. we weren't expecting a ton of rain but we were expecting a few isolated showers to come through. watch what happened as they moved through west virginia. i'm not done with the rain chances. i still think areas east of 95 could end up with a few of these stray showers, but this is 2:30 this afternoon. do you see how they're very few and far between, and the farther south you go the better chances you have of seeing them. areas west of 95, this is 5:00, you're into the mid-80s, the sun is out. it's a little bit of a breeze. enjoy the last day of your holiday weekend. tuesday and wednesday we're still tracking it. you can get the latest forecast on the wusa9 app. see you in just a little bit. north korea launched another short-range ballistic missile overnight that japan said could have hit an airplane or ship in
12:08 pm
ben tracy is tracking the developments. he's in beijing. >> north korea has now conducted nine missile launch this is year, three in just the past three weeks. the latest comes after the country claimed its leader kim jong-un oversaw a successful test of a new antiaircraft system this past weekend. japan was quick to condemn the new missile launch as was south korea whose new president has said he wants better relations with north korea. despite international sanctions, north korea's capabilities continue to grow. last week the country said it perfected a medium-range solid missile that it would start mass producing. and earlier this month, it tested what is believed to be its longest range missile yet, potentially capable of carrying a nuclear warhead but still not able to reach the united states. >> ignition. >> 2014 was the last time the u.s. tested its west coast missile defense system, which ha

of the trials. on tuesday the u.s. military will attempt to shoot down an intercontinental ballistic missile for the first time. >> while north korea continues its missile test, it has not conducted a nuclear test which many people have expected. when we were in north korea last month i asked the vice foreign minister if they still plan to conduct that test, and he said kim jong-un will do it whenever he sees fit. ben tracy, cbs news beijing. an investigation is underway now into a deadly malfunction at new york city's fleet week festival. a navy s.e.a.l. was killed after his parachute did not open during a skydiving demonstration. this is a very experienced sky diver. he somehow separated from the chute and landed in the hudson river. >> as they were landing, out of the corner of my eye i saw a splash and i heard a very distinct thump. >> authorities have yet to release the s.e.a.l.'s identity. the leapfrogs as they're called had posted to their facebook page on sunday saying new york

12:13 pm
>> you have an assignment for today. >> how many people don't know? >> a lot more than you would think. >> you can even hear the person interviewing, it's sad when you think about the sacrifices our fighting men and women have given for our freedoms and so many people still don't have a clue what memorial day is all about. some veterans and loved ones of fallen military members are wishing this holiday commands more respect. veteran's groups are saying a growing military civilian disconnect adds to the feeling that memorial day has been overshadowed. you see 12% of the united states population served in the military during world war ii. that's down now to less than 1/2 of 1% today. that guarantees more americans are not personally acquainted with a soldier, a sailor, an airman or a marine. to keep this holiday weekend in perspective 100 people hiked 60 miles to finish at arlington national cemetery. they started in harpers ferry early saturday and finished early this

12:15 pm
i'm happy to bring awareness to all those who have gone, you know, and the duty. >> it's very special. i've taken with me on every run and every ruck that i do, he's always with me. >> this part of it is very emotional. >> as they close in on their final destination, arlington national cemetery. >> now if you would like to be a part of this a ruck to remember is an annual event, and all the donations they collect go to support our veterans. and there are more events today on this memorial day. right now there are road closures in place for the memorial day parade downtown. it steps off from 7th street and constitution. it starts at 2 p.m. and rolls
12:16 pm
the road closures will stay in place in most of the congested areas until about 7 tonight. be aware of that. in less than an hour, there will be a ceremony at the vietnam memorial wall. the names of three additions to the wall will be red aloud and five service members will be welcomed home. ken burns is one of the keynote speakers. his vietnam documentary debuts on pbs later this year. confederate monuments in baltimore could be coming down soon. mayor katherine pew says the city is mulling over it after the city of new orleans took down four civil war era monuments there. they contend they honor supremacy. confederate buffs say this is part of their southern heritage. now wusa9's first alert weather rated d. c.'s most accurate forecast. it felt like -- where is he? >> he left. her cute little dog is here. >> it felt like it was going to
12:17 pm
>> and then all of a sudden. >> some areas could see a sprinkle or shower. yesterday, i mean, the moisture was excuse me really kind of caught up with us for a good hour or so around the region. today we're waiting for that front to come through. could see a few stray showers off to the east. most areas are going to be dry. that's good. it's still kind of cloudy and foggy out there for now. we are going see things clear off. we're going to see the best looking day today, and that's fitting for the memorial day holiday. winds staying out of the southeast keeping that humidity in place, temperatures around the region 79 for leesburg, see how nice and warm it is, a little bit of sunshine will heat us up nicely. we are going to reach the 80 today. we haven't reached the 80s at all this week. 75, this is for the parade, if you're going to be there in the afternoon, 76 degrees. i think it's safe to say for the d. c. area you can leave the umbrellas at home. yo
12:18 pm
going to run into maybe a few more stray showers out there. i'll show you on your futurecast coming up. 81 by 4:00 in the afternoon. so this is what we're expecting, some sun today, as much sun as we've seen all weekend long. it is going to be warmer. isolated showers once again tuesday and more so on wednesday, maybe even have to bump that up. thursday is going to be the pick of the week, we're really going to wish thursday was today. it's going to be so nice out there. this upcoming weekend is far away. i'm going to cross my fingers for this one. it does look to be a little unsettled once again. so for today, just a few stray showers east of us, same for tomorrow, now, by wednesday that's going to be where we see isolated to scattered, not nearly a washout, and it ends up being more in the afternoon and into the early evening, so much of the morning actually is going to be quite nice with some sunshine. that could help fuel some of those storms. thursday, nothing. make some plans to be outside. we need some dry wer.
12:19 pm
rain. we are out of our drought situation, so we don't really need to keep adding on to these totals. the rain keeps on coming. we're not seeing anything pop up right now on first alert live doppler. this is 3:30 this afternoon. i'm going to leave the chance for some showers east of 95, through prince george's county, calvert, anne arundel and down through parts of charles and st. mary's county and of course over through the eastern shore. if you're boating back home today, if you have friends boating home, you might run into some of those showers. the wind should remain generally light, 15 miles per hour if you're going to be on the bay. for tonight the cloud cover moves back on. you might see a stray shower into the overnight hours. this is 3:00 in the morning. as we head through tomorrow morning, back to work. i know it's always hard to get back to work after a long weekend. cloudy and it will be on the warmer side. tuesday afternoon some showers start to work their way in. this is 3:00 in the afternoon through the maryland panhandle. this is 8:30 at night, so not a
12:20 pm
lot of rain. they will kind of pass on through. d. c. and areas north will have a better chance. we start off on wednesday with some sunshine. see how it's a little bit more active wednesday afternoon and into the evening hours. these will sweep on through. once these get out of here, sunshine for thursday. we deserve it. it's been so cloudy and soggy and kind of wet the past few days over our holiday. for today 85 degrees, maybe a stray shower off to the east. generally if you're west of 95 you're in the clear. 80 for tuesday, 82 for wednesday, a warm week. we were kind of in the 70s last week. we will stay warm but could drop to the upper 70s by the end of the weekend as we track another chance of showers. we'll be right back.
